sounds like they're noodling towards throwin' stones to open(?) and an absolutely blissful box o' unfolds...victim comes in and out like you don't even know it was there--dreamlike--and i am a huge fan of the song--drums and space rips--i'm going back in--

I was addicted after my 2nd show,yet all my new friends didnt understand my fixation on this(must drop large quantities of LSD).WELL,THIS WAS THE jamm THAT I'd never thought was a possibility for me,being the touchstoner that people catoragize me.The rest ofshow wasnt anything special,except that JER-BO was rockin still!forgot to say that the playin -jam was what did it for me.I honestly thought I traveled back in time whjen I heard that jam.It fully caught me off gaurd-what a special experience for those of us who didnt have the opportunity to see this live until now!

Here is a show that I have always had an affinity for. Who knows, maybe it was the Sacto girls at the show. This is an awesome show for late period Dead. A really good Samson opener and the Sunshine, Walkin' Blues, Broken Arrow, Memphis Blues, and Box Of Rain are really nice 1st set tunes that you don't hear that much of. Nice way to mix it up a bit. And of course the monster Playin' is why you're listening to this show. This Playin' is superb. The highlights weren't as frequent in later years, but it didn't mean they weren't there. You just have to look a little harder. I'm a fan of all Dead era's and if you have an open mind you can find all kinds of brilliant music in the Dead's later playing. Go ahead and look, it's there.
Boogie with Stew.

Subject: great show
a very well-played show with a few lesser known songs. Jerry was on point even when he wasn't, and the magic stuck like glue. the first set alone is where it's at, although you know what happens next. a lucky sacramento crowd heard a rarity and a gem.

Decently well-played show. Very good performance. Pleasant and engaging Jerry guitar tones throughout. Limited lyric flubs. Decent vocal mix, but a tad low overall. Inriguing Phil string nuances. Vince sings and plays competently. Weir sounds like he is getting over a slight cold. Drummers well acquit themselves. Recording is okay and it's been enhanced and beautifully transferred by CM so you know the sound is there. An absolutely thunderingly proud and dynamic Playing. Enthralling China Doll draws out nicely and Liberty encore caps it off succinctly. Very little wasted motion concert. Get in, get on wit' it, get out.

Subject: Superb Playin' But...
Jerry enjoyed a rennaissance of sorts this year and the band dipped into brilliance frequently. no they werre not the Dead of '90 or '73 but the Playing in the Band in this show, the Deer Creek terrapin, the David Murray set showed a band trying to break new ground in improvisational playing. jsut makes the slide of this year's finish into the next two years all that much sadder but I have to say that I have found gems in those years too. Can't explain it but he must have woken up every now and then.

This show is right on! Anyone who thinks it sucks can e-mail me and we'll have it out. It's easily as good as the sainted Autzen shows at which I was present. I live for Playing's like this! Enjoy.
